At Fiesta Limena, we like to educate our guests about Peruvian cuisine and culture. Have you ever heard of Huayruro (why-euro) seeds? These naturally red and black seeds are very popular in Peru, and have been a part of Peruvian culture for many years. They are used as good luck charms, and are said to ward off negativity while attracting good fortune for those who wear them in Huayruro Bracelets, necklaces and earrings. Even newborn babies are often given a huayruro bracelet with wishes for a long and happy life. As artisans explore new possibilities, they are also creating new huayruro home decor items and both simple and sophisticated jewelry designs. These talented artisans create Huayruro Jewelry designs like this Huayruro Bracelet that are beautiful, intriguing and meaningful.
